Works Fine – IDE CD/DVD Device to Laptop Connector Adapter (2-Pack) Reviews

posted by metro1000 on 09/07/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Works OK, use for testing out-of-laptop or permanent solution. Quality good. "Loopthrough" for floppy power supply, although this is probably a ggod use of a redundant power connector now nobody uses them.
Cons:
Soldered pins on 44pin connector end up a bit close to the case even with the provided stand offs. Use insulation tape to be sure of no shorts. Case for this type of drive now urgently needed.
Other:
will test with an IDE to SATA board soon and also IDE to USB.
Needs DX to sell a case to put it in now........
Bottomline:
Good for the price.
